On Target with Threshold, Xhilaration and Mossimo.

First, have you added Cartwheel to your favourite iPhone apps? You MUST! It has a 15% savings for these HOT heels by Xhilaration. Crafted of beige techno-suede and embellished with silver studs and rhinestones, they have a 5" heel with a 2" platform.

Schmexy sells for $49.99 and I am saving them for the iFabbo event in October.No, they did not come with extra stones, note to Target.

It took 3 coats for me to achieve the level of opacity I was looking for. I added a Hardwear, a high-shine topcoat by Butter London to punch this shade up a notch and extend the wear. It lasted 2.5 days before it chipped and did not stain my nails upon removal 4 days after application. I started with Nail Foundation base coat by Butter London. It took a while for Shake Your Money Maker to cure. In the meantime, I smudged 4 nails. womp womp. This is a rich attention grabbing shade and I am looking forward to wearing it again. I rate Shake Your Money Maker 4 out of 5 stars. Retailing for $8.99 at CVS, I am hoping my next go dri…
